Balti Seitan Madras

Balti Seitan Madras created by gailanng

I adapted this recipe from a chicken recipe in an Indian cookbook. It's very flavorful and just the right amount of spice for my taste- but you can always make it spicier. It's my new favorite way to get protein!

  • Mix the tomato paste, fennel seeds, ginger, coriander, garlic, chilli powder, curry powder, turmeric, lemon juice, salt, and water in a bowl.
  • Heat the vegetable oil in a pan and cook the onions until they are softened.
  • Pour the spice mixture into the pan and let simmer.
  • Break the seitan into pieces and add to the pan.
  • Let the seitan simmer for about 10 minutes, until much of the liquid has been absorbed by the seitan or has evaporated.
  • Remove the pan from the heat, stir in the chopped chiles, and serve.

    A dear friend went through this like Typhoid Mary. It's the truth. I'm more honest than Abraham Lincoln. (The last line...that's from my Paul Harvey "the rest of the story book" :-)

    I have to agree that the flavor is very bright, and not overly spicy. The only thing I left out were the fennel seeds because I didn't have any and used some jalapenos in a jar. I also served it with quinoa. I'd make this again. Maybe I'd cut back a bit on the cooking time because there wasn't enough sauce left for the next day.

    Fantastic! So delicious and flavorful. I cooked it in my pure clay pot and my family loved it. This one is going on my recipe book. The food cooked in pure clay cookware tastes the best and is healthier too. The special steam locker lid seal all the nutrients in and give a healthier food. I got mine from mecware.US (online)
